VOLUME: 2 record cartons (2.5 cubic feet)
MCAC State of the Art, front cover, May/June 2006
The record series comprises materials created or acquired by the Monmouth County Arts Council in conjunction with the organization’s mission to foster quality professional, educational, and amateur arts experiences for residents of Monmouth County and the greater Tri-State area. The Monmouth County Arts Council was founded in 1971 after the Junior League of Monmouth County surveyed the community and identified the need for a central agency to coordinate and assist all county artists and arts organizations. With seed money from the Junior League and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, the Council was designated as the official county arts agency, consisted of arts groups, artists, and supporters of the arts. Since then, the organization has provided assistance and services to strengthen the arts and the quality of life in Monmouth County.
The records consist of board minutes, reports, ephemera, photographs, documents and advertisements from events, publications, and press clippings. The materials arrived at the Archives in three record cartons, condensed into two after materials in large binders were rehoused more efficiently into archival folders.
This record series is open to researchers without restrictions.
The records are available upon request in the Jane Clayton Reading Room at the Monmouth County Archives, which is open for research from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, except holidays. Appointments are advised.
The records are arranged by subseries and chronologically within subseries.
